Al-Akhbar indicated that “the government commissioner to the military court, Judge Fadi Akiki, charged 68 people with the crime of participating in the events that led to the Tayouneh massacre.”

The newspaper pointed out that “the investigations conducted by the Army Intelligence Directorate, under the supervision of Akiki, were attributed to the security official of the head of the Lebanese Forces party, Samir Geagea, for managing the deployment of armed forces (affiliated with the Forces Party), some of whom were brought in from Maarab, the night before the massacre, and manage their movements on October 14.

She pointed out that “in the eyes of the Army Intelligence and the Military Public Prosecution, the picture of the events that led to the Tayouneh massacre has become almost complete,” explaining that “what happened on October 14, 2021 was not the result of an isolated “friction” that occurred in “Zarub Al-Farr” branching from Boulevard. Sami al-Solh, rather, is the result of security and military preparations that began the night before the massacre, and that according to investigations conducted by the Army Intelligence Directorate, Geagea’s security official was present “on the ground” since the night before, to supervise armed men, some of whom were brought in from Maarab.

Al-Akhbar stated that “according to the detainees’ confessions, supported by “technical evidence”, it was proven to the investigators that the security official in Maarab, Simon Muslim, surveyed the area in Ain al-Rummaneh and Tayouneh the night before the day of the demonstration, and he stayed in the area on Thursday, and left after massacre occurred.”

The newspaper pointed out that “a number of detainees admitted that they were brought from Maarab specifically, the previous night, and said that dozens of forces were deployed in a number of internal streets of the area carrying submachine guns hidden inside black bags, and that a Muslim was supervising them.”

The newspaper pointed out that it was proven to the investigators that the “forces” had brought in young men with their military equipment to stay in specific locations in Ashrafieh and Ain al-Rummaneh, stressing that “the information provided by detainees is seen by the supervisors of the investigation as “confirmed”, based on communications data and surveillance cameras.”

Al-Akhbar added: “Based on investigations conducted exclusively by the Lebanese Army Intelligence Directorate, the government commissioner at the Military Court, Judge Fadi Akiki, charged 68 people (including 18 detainees), and the defendants are divided into three sections:
– The first section included 47 people who were in the Ain El-Remmaneh side, accused of murder, attempted murder, inciting sectarian strife and forming an armed gang, and at the head of these defendants was Geagea’s security official, Simon Muslim.
– The second section includes 20 people who participated in the events, they came from the Chiah area, including 3 detainees, and Akiki accused them of murder, attempted murder and possession of weapons without a license, but he did not charge this group with the crime of forming an armed gang similar to his claim on the other side, considering The participants in the shooting who came from the southern suburbs came with an individual decision, according to the investigations, as a reaction to the shooting that killed and wounded the majority of them, most of whom were on Sami El Solh Avenue (between Ain El-Remmaneh and Badaro).
The third section of the defendants includes a soldier in the army for the crime of murder, and he is the soldier who appeared in one of the video recordings shooting directly at unarmed demonstrators.

It was also proven to the investigators that the security official in Maarab surveyed the area on the eve of the demonstration and supervised the spread of armed men.”

According to the newspaper, “Judge Akiki referred the file and the detainees to the first military investigative judge, Fadi Sawan.”

“Al-Akhbar” reported, according to its information, that “Akiki was included in the file” to “draw the attention” of Judge Sawan regarding the existence of an investigation underway according to a separate report, to identify people suspected of participating in the crime, including “leaders and partisans of the Lebanese Forces,” noting that “these data prompted the prosecution The military general summoned Samir Geagea to hear his testimony.

At least 7 people were killed during armed unrest in the Tayouneh area in the Lebanese capital, Beirut, about two weeks ago, which the authorities described as an attack on demonstrators who were heading to participate in a protest called by “Hezbollah” and the “Amal” movement to demand the dismissal of the investigating judge in the Beirut port explosion.

The leaderships of “Hezbollah” and “Amal Movement” had said that “groups of the “Lebanese Forces” party spread on the rooftops of buildings and practiced direct sniping for premeditated killing,” while the head of the media apparatus in communicating with the “Lebanese Forces” party, Charles Jabbour, responded, saying One of the snipers in the Tayouneh incidents was affiliated with Hezbollah, and he was smuggled in a car.
